"Long Gone Wild" is an important, compelling, and timely film with a powerful message regarding the cruel and inhumane treatment of one of the world's most spectacular and beloved animals: Orcinus orca, the killer whale. Shot in 4k and featuring the world’s leading orca experts, LGW picks up where "Blackfish" left off yet tells a uniquely new and different story, focusing on the transition of the orca as a “demon from hell” to the “Brainiac of the planet”; the “Blackfish Effect” (what it did and didn’t accomplish i.e., SeaWorld took a major hit to its bottom line but the 20 orcas are still there); the case against captivity; orcas as sentient animals; and the Whale Sanctuary Project, the soon-to-be, first-ever seaside sanctuary where retired orcas can return to - and be cared for - in their natural habitat with absolutely no requirement to perform. The film also addresses the disturbing developments surrounding Russia and China. Russia is live-capturing orcas and selling them to the exploding Chinese marine theme park industry (60 parks and counting) for a reported $6 million each. Ric O’Barry of The Cove fame accompanied director Bill Neal and crew on a “stealth” mission in search of the orcas held in a secret location near the park in Zhuhai. The dicey operation very nearly landed them in a Chinese jail.
